In the least shocking news to come out of Celebland today—no, we're not talking about Kim Kardashian's divorce or Heidi Klum's insanely creepy Halloween costume—Jessica Simpson has finally confirmed that she is expecting!
Wait—Jessica Simpson hasn't admitted she's pregnant yet? Though it's obvious to anyone with a pair of eyes that the 31-year-old singer is trying her hardest to conceal a growing baby bump, the mother-to-be has yet to publicly announce her pregnancy to the world. What's stopping her? Oh, just a few hundred thousand dollars!
It's good to be Mr. Jessica Simpson! Eric Johnson, who will wed the singer/fashion designer later this year, has reportedly worked out a prenup with his fiancée that guarantees him bundles of cash! According to Star Magazine via Celebitchy, Jessica (and her father Joe Simpson) learned a valuable, financial lesson after she married and divorced Nick Lachey without a prenup and are supposedly determined to protect Jessica's billion dollar brand of music, clothes, and shoes, should Jessica and Eric not live happily ever after. "Eric is on what you might call a vesting plan," said an insider to the maazine. "He'll get $500,000 as a wedding present. Then, on each anniversary, he'll get another $200,000. Is he and Jessica make it to five years of marriage, he'll get an additional $500,000 bonus — and a $1 million bonus if they make it to 10 years."
A debate broke out on YourTango earlier this week when Celeb Love reported that Jessica Simpson's fiance, Eric Johnson, is rumored to have issued an ultimatum: if she doesn't lose weight by their wedding, he's calling it off. Does the wife of a professional athlete need a fit, skinny wife? Should Jessica find love with someone who appreciates her as she is? Has Jessica "let herself go"?
Coming on the heels of the report that her fiancé Eric Johnson is demanding that Jessica lose weight or else, everyone's favorite former pop-star-turned-reality-star-turned-fashion designer Tweeted her fans a Valentine's Day message, along with a cryptic countdown that read, "9 1/2 Weeks :)"
On the heels of sis Ashlee's divorce announcement comes word that Jessica Simpson's fiance is telling her to take off the weight...or he's taking off! According to the Enquirer, Eric Johnson gave a devastated Jessica an ultimatum about shedding for the wedding.
Jessica Simpson says fiance Eric Johnson picked what might have been an inopportune time to propose -- in the middle of her favorite TV show. Thank God for TiVo! The singer tells SIRIUS XM's Morning Mash Up she was watching TV when Johnson "made me pause it." Simpson said, "I was like, 'It's a really good part in Parenthood … it's an emotional fight right now,'" to which Eric replied 'I know, but I just got to show you something'" and he pulled out the ring.
Oh, Jess. Just when she started to show how classy and mature she was by telling Ryan Seacrest, "[Nick's and my] relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa," she totally contradicted herself by announcing her own engagement just a few days later to boyfriend Eric Johnson, 31. "Yes, we are excited to confirm (the news)," said the 30-year-old singer's rep. But we have to wonder, is Jess getting engaged because Eric is the guy she wants to spend the rest of her life with, or because those rumors that Nick's engagement freaked her were true and getting engaged herself is just a way to make herself feel better about it?
Poor Jessica Simpson. Every time her weight fluctuates, the world has to make a story about it. Can't a girl just indulge in some Mexican food every once in a while without it being a big deal? This time, the National Enquirer is claiming that Jessica's new boyfriend, Eric Johnson, has knocked her up! "Jessica is crazy in love with [Eric], so they’ve decided to make a baby. She always said she wanted to be pregnant by the time she was 30," said a pal of Jess' to the magazine, reports TheHollywoodGossip.com.
Jessica Simpson strikes out again, according to the latest tabloid reports. While we were pretty surprised to see Simpson moving so fast with her new beau, Eric Johnson, and we weren't totally buying the couple's very public PDA sessions, we still hoped the unlucky-in-love singer had finally found herself a decent guy. But according to Star magazine, Simpson may be headed for more heartbreak. Jessica Simpson Has Questionable Taste In Men
